ok...i have the 8kha+ MB (old...yes...upgrade soon!) but i really need 1gig of ram in there. i currently have 2 256meg sticks and i have 3 slots. is there a problem...as in a MAJOR problem with adding just a 512meg stick to the 3rd slot? has anyone done this with this board? thanks.

i've been running an 8kha+ in my linux box for a while now, i don't have a gig of ram but i've got 768.
one 512mb stick of good quality stuff
one 256 stick of the cheepest stuff i could find

i've never pushed a gig with the board before but i've had no problem with mixing sticks on it or filling up all the slots. i don't see why it wouldn't work. you might have to reduce any FSB overclock you have but that would be it.

hope this helps

the only problem i had with 3 sticks in mine is it lowered my max fsb.but if your not overclocking the buss then it shouldn't be a big deal.
